Tom Rodriguez Admits To Courting Carla AbellanaFinally, Tom Rodriguez admitted that he is courting his "My Destiny" co-star Carla Abellana. Tom said he's doing it the traditional way--by getting to know her and her family.
Tom said Carla is one of the people who inspires him right now. Since this is their third project together, their friendship has grown deeper, he added.
Tom and Carla first worked together on "My Husband's Lover." They did a movie under GMA Films, and then starred again on "My Destiny."
The actor revealed he recently had dinner with Carla, her mom, sisters and aunts. He had fun with them. Tom said he's flattered that Carla thought of him as a "boyfriend material."
Carla and Tom have been rumored together ever since the former broke up with Geoff Eigenmann and shortly thereafter, Tom separated from singer Kaye Rivera. Both of them denied their "relationship" caused the subsequent breakups, but rumors persisted.
Tom said one of the best ways he has gotten to know Carla was by working with her. Through their work, their walls and all their vulnerabilities broke down. They are able to get to know each other better.
He was a fan of Carla's work, at first. Then, later on, he became a fan of her as a person as well. Carla, Tom said, is down to earth and she wishes only the best for others.
He added that he never heard Carla speak ill about other people. She's always positive and she always wishes the best for everyone.
"She’s so helpful, so caring, and she’s just the best."
Meanwhile, Tom said he's not ready to settle down just yet. He's just starting a good career in showbiz, so he can save for the future.
For Tom, the most important thing to do before settling down is to save up enough to start a family. That's the time he can say that he is ready to get married.
He doesn't want to settle down if he doesn't have the means to support his future family, Tom said.
